Well, it took me a bit, but I finished two different paintings that had been started a couple of months ago.
Better late than never, right?
Feels good to get them done. Every time I walked into the studio, they would be sitting there staring at me with (I felt) sad, neglected eyes.
The lilacs were really hard. Maybe that's why I procrastinated on them. Lots of value and color changes going on.
The smaller painting was from a photo I took at Anne's Garden Center in Dixon last summer. I've always wanted to do something like this. I also started on a black background on this piece, where normally I start on a warmer red toned background. This painting is also looser with less attention to exact detail.
